Dear Daddy,

Because you are the BEST dad ever, we wanted to do something special to show you how much we love you. It was a little tough to pull off, seeing as how we are still in diapers and not old enough to earn minimum wage, but we found a nice lady to hire who accepted payment in the form of long naps.

Her resume stated that she was very comfortable handling heavy machinery, but we were peeking through the window and were not too impressed with her coordination.



In fact, she was so clumsy that she crashed the lawnmower into the rock wall you built and knocked off a few rocks. We were very upset, but she gave us fruit snacks and we called it even.

The yard looks great. It is only a small token in comparison to the wonder dad that you are to us! We LOVE you....group kiss.

Love,

bubs & lu


P.S. Next year we'll try to find cheap labor that doesn't sweat like a snowman on the beach!

I'm just impressed that you got the mower started.

I'm also impressed with the fact that you got out and did that...

Frightening to say its been decades since I have used one of those things. Great job (minus the rock wall) Thanks for hosting us last weekend. We had so much fun. We're home at last, I couldn't be more ready.
